SLC, the rail station design and build specialist, welcomed over 40 people from across the rail industry to its offices in Birmingham’s Brindleyplace on Thursday 16 June.

The event – embracing our uniqueness to create winning teams – is the first in a series of special events being held to celebrate 10 years of the Women in Rail charity.

It was organised by SLC’s Apprentice Engineering, Lucy Dyer, and it involved activities and networking.

Sam Uren, Engineering Director of SLC Rail said: “It was fantastic to welcome so many people to our new office in Brindleyplace.

“Lucy worked hard to create an event that got people networking and having fun whilst demonstrating the importance of embracing our uniqueness.  It was a very enjoyable evening.”

Claire Burrows, Chair of West Midlands Regional Women in Rail Group, said:  “We are very grateful for the support of SLC Rail in organising and hosting this special anniversary event for us. It was super to be back with an ‘in person’ event and there was a great atmosphere and real buzz amongst attendees.”

Women in Rail was created to improve diversity in the UK rail industry by providing networking opportunities and support for all women within the sector.
